Welcome to AZSPC.org
Every year suicide claims more lives of Arizonians than homicide. Yet most suicides are preventable. With public discourse, education, and awareness, each of us can help reduce the frequency of suicide in our communities.
The most important step in prevention is the recognition of the many signs of suicide. With compassion and courage, we can give a loved one hope in time of despair.
Survivors, Professionals, Supporters and anyone who is interested in the issues surrounding suicide are invited to come into our site for additional information.
Coalition meetings are held the second Tuesday of every month. Please call (480)784-1514, ext 2750 for more information.
